Eisdieler: Verboden Lekker- 08.30.12
So it all began when we were wandering Linz on the first day and turning a corner saw a strange group of well dressed businessmen in a tiny covered shopping walkway ~ each eating an ice cream cone with such a childlike fixation ~ and each cone was extra long, thin, and BLACK. I had to have one. In fact we wandered down a few random roads in hopes of figuring out where they were walking from, and luckily found the spot! Unfortunately we were late for something else and filed a mental bookmark for later. And then, the next time we tried to pop by, it was already closed! Argh!
So today, with a million other things to do (mostly get the whole Free Universal Construction Kit display up and ready!) ~ it was a high priority, and we finally made it over to Eisdieler between finishing set up and heading to our first real meal of the day (at 7:30pm!)… and it was DELICIOUS. And the design of the store ~ from the cheeky photography by Erwin Rachbauer to the graphic design to the incredible ceilings to the delectable ice cream (all made of natural ingredients) in unusual flavors and served in the much coveted long thin black sugar cones! There is so little i could find about the store online, that you have to see the details of the store and the delicious cone on the next page… and definitely stop by if you pass through Linz!
UPDATE: We went back for more, and took pics of the menu too!
Here is the picture i took when we went by and it was closed…
… then finally back today for a proper ice cream!
Look at that ceiling!
And the cones! (and photography!)
Love the simplicity of the menu!
We went with Bourbon Vanilla and Latte Machiatto
See how long they are? That’s not a small scoop!
We decided they tasted amazing mixed together ~ and in our post display set up delirium, mushed them together to have a bit of each on both…
Apparently i was so slow while shooting pics and trying to eat at the same time… it started to melt through the bottom, one drop at a time. Sucking it from the bottom was like drinking a milkshake…
This is all i could find for a Eisdieler website…
And inside the store, i also found this incredible Urban Guide to the Linz Labyrinth… more to come on that perhaps ~ awesome typography! (And great finds like this ice cream spot!)
We also asked them about the black cones, and it turns out they only hand make the waffle cones, they purchase these as they are… and they aren’t really flavored, really it’s just a black sugar cone! (No real taste difference)
